She is a healthy baby. and getting along nicely. ." • ' • » • ' My goodness, when Doc. Stork decides to arrive he ARRIVES. I was talking with Mrs George Ballufif Friday near supper time and she was to call me back on some details about a shower recently given for her. I didn't get the call till, an hour or so later, and by that time I wasn't home. She said to phone her in the morning, which I did, and instead of getting her I was informed "Mamma is at' the hospital with a new baby." They didn't, get the girl they ordered .to even it up, two boys and two girls, but the little boy is most, acceptable and I-am sure they won't give him away. ,.':• •' ««,».* JTKe Duanef WaUukails 6f Hum- bdld ,have a little gin.

I am surprised the stores-here don't featured birds, but I am glad they don't, for we have Dick Post to take care of the bird market here, care of the bird market here; There are ever so many gadgets shown to make bird life happier, and even a bird owner and keeper happier! \ * * * If anyone who reads this is of mechanical turn of mind, I wish you'd tell me what to do with a typewriter roller that won't carry the paper. I use two sheets and a carbort. It has- worked fine till a few weeks ago. When I use the spacer, the paper next to the roller and carbon move up as they are supposed to, but the sheet which carries the type written' page facing me stays, "put". When I want to go to the next line, I have to bend forward, use the little notched "wheel" at the side., hold the papers against the roller and there I am, Using BOTH hands on three little papers and am in constant motion, back and forward, back and forward, as I hop across the pages. It ma'y' be good for my waist line, that exercise, but what it does to my disposition is NQT good! I wish '" typewriters were dated like cars.

I have a lot of respect for Mabel Hutzell's white chrysanthemums (did I spell it right?) She had a nice bouquet of them on' a table when 1 was there a few days ago. Jack Frost hadn't hurt them a bit. Pearl Pottir was hoping to out-wit him by saving some red, ones which he. always nips, year after year. I must call her and find out Which won, she or Jack. * * * Lois of Korean hands are going to be warmer this winter tor the Methodist circles art making woolen mittens to be sent abroad. Little aprons are also being made. I always wish we could see the persons' to whom things are sent. I think' of the 2*0 baby bootees I've made and wonder what the tots look like. Some are rather grown Up by now. No, not Koreans, just little citizens, mostly around Algona. • * . » . * ' A women'ji club recently had as a program a review of the life Of Mary Pickford. Well, Mary has had an interesting life and a full one. Three husbands, a couple of adopted children, buckets of money and plenty of fame. Years ago when the movie business was in infancy, a magazine "Motion Picture" was published* (Still is, for that matter) The department devoted to questions and answers was a conservative bit of editing and the intimate phases of the actors lives were neld in deep, dark secrecy. Little by little they loosened up and now there is no secrecy, no privacy. I think sometimes the old way might be the better— or perhaps we could reach a pleasant middle ground. Like thousands of other girls, I started a book of pictures of my favorites and as I found some from time to time of their husbands ana children, I'd put them on a page together. So there was Mary with husband number I, Owen Moore. Then along came Douglas Fairbanks, and on the opposite page 1 placed Douglas and his first wife,' small Douglas Jr., oi knickerbocker age, and Mr: Fairbanks' husband who suc.eedecl Douglas. Then to Mary's side I added Buddy Rogers and the adopted son and daughter. To the Fairbanks side I added Lady Syl-. via Ashley and Joan Crawford a few years later when she married Douglas Jr. but it became so involved I gave it up. What is true of Mary is true of so many others, but I' enjoyed looking at the book a few months ago when 1 was getting rid of some old relics. I didn't part with the movie book. Who could discard "Broncho" Billy Anderson, Lillian Walker (she of the winsome dimples), Bill Hart, Alice Joyce (who married Tom Moore and w£s for a time Mary Pickford's sister-in-law), Marquerite Clark, (dead these several years), a petite brunette, Buster Keaton and his wife, (a sister of Norma and. Constance Talmadge), Harold Lloyd and his Gloria (sqme- thing-or-other) their daughter and one adopted daughter. 1 believed the Lldyds are still living together—one of a thousand! Then there was my favorite Wallace Reid, a handsome young .man. What a "Student Prince" he made. And Oh-h-h Rudolph Valentino. He of, the "Shiek" fame. There are many more, but at least I've hit the highlights. * * * I might add that I saw "The Magnificent Obsession" with Irene Dunn» I wonder if Jane Wyman can top her. I'm going to see. It was a very fine story. My goodness I mustn't forget Clara How. One person I know who reads this column would be quite disqusted if I forgot HER. bhe was the IT girl—remember?
